Just browsing around the map, seems like a couple of other places like Saint-Arnoult-en-Yvelines (15km), Chartres (38km), Epernon (14km)...... but that's just with map browsing, not sure how feasible these places actually are to find lodging and so on...

Hopefully as the August draws closer we'll here more about how they intend to handle this large influx of riders in regards to transportation and ferrying riders to Rambouillet.
Go to Google and type in 'Accommodation near Saint-Arnoult-en-Yvelines' ... then pick the PBP dates and a couple days on either side, and see what's available. You'll have to go to each likely hotel's website to double-check the dates, but then you'll know.
